EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX 2GB (02G-P4-2774-KR)
In our recent review of original GeForce GTX 780s we were surprised at the extensive model range of such cards offered by EVGA Corporation. We are now even more surprised to find that EVGA produces as many as 13 models of GeForce GTX 770. Our model isn’t new, yet interesting. It is called EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX 2GB (02G-P4-2774-KR).
The cardboard box is designed in the same style as the box of EVGA’s GeForce GTX 780. The information on the packaging is different, of course.
There is a window in its back through which you can check out the card’s model name, serial number and barcode.
The graphics card is additionally protected by a plastic wrap:
The EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX comes with the same accessories as its senior cousin, including the stickers and poster.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX is manufactured in China and comes with a 2-year warranty. It costs $410, which is much cheaper than the price of its GTX 780 cousin. It doesn’t look much different, though. An inexperienced user might easily confuse the two models.
The model name on the gold-colored inserts you can see on the cooler’s casing differentiates this card from the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX. So, this cheaper model has the same exclusive decoration elements as EVGA's top-end product.
It is a real pleasure just to hold this graphics card in your hands.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX is no different from the reference sample in terms of its video, MIO and power connectors.
It must be noted that the reference GTX 770 has lower power requirements than the GTX 780: 230 watts at peak load. It is recommended to be used with a 600-watt power supply. EVGA says that the GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX consumes up to 250 watts but can be used with a 600W PSU, too.
We've got the reference PCB design here:
The power system follows the 5+1+1 formula with 5 power phases for the GPU, 1 phase for the graphics memory and 1 phase for PLL.
The GPU voltage regulator is based on an ON Semiconductor NCP 4206 controller.
